In 2013, film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki suddenly announced his retirement at the age of 72. But he couldn’t shake his burning desire to create. After an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarked on a new endeavor, his first project ever to utilize CGI. But the artist, who had been adamant about hand-drawn animation, confronted many challenges. Can an old master who thinks he’s past his prime shine once again? This program goes behind the scenes as Miyazaki overcomes struggles to create his short film using CGI. In Japanese with English subtitles.
